Social eCommerce

The word bibliography displayed on a TVThis is part 3 of a bibliography of privacy topics to review in depth. I took my main interests and narrowed them down to 3 specific applications of privacy theory. This one focuses on eCommerce, social media and privacy. It does not touch conventional social media like Facebook in any depth and when it reviews them, it is looking at them through the lens of commerce.

This list is incomplete due to me starting the bibliography late. It would benefit by searching references of these documents as well as evaluating sources that cite them.

The topics are not very closely attached to library science topics.

A goal is to be able to look at privacy from several significantly different angles to develop a broader understanding.
